Name Description


Below is an example of using the GetObjects<T> method. Here, objectSpace is the Object Space instance which can be accessed as described in the Ways to Implement Business Logic topic.

IList activeUsers = objectSpace.GetObjects(
    typeof(PermissionPolicyUser), new BinaryOperator("IsActive", true), true);

When implementing the IObjectSpace interface in the BaseObjectSpace class's descendant, don't implement the GetObjects<T> method. It's implemented in the BaseObjectSpace class. To get the specified objects, the BaseObjectSpace.GetObjects(Type type, CriteriaOperator criteria, bool inTransaction) method invokes a protected virtual CreateCollection method that does nothing and returns null. So, you should override the CreateCollection method in your descendant.
